West Hill Enabling Enterprise Challenge Day

July 2017

Now in our sixth year working with Enabling Enterprise, we are passionate about preparing their students for the real world and ensuring they aspire to do great things through their work in the school and on business trips.  Having spent the whole of last week focusing on Enabling Enterprise Lesson Time Projects such as Trash to Treasure and Active Minds, the Enabling Enterprise team arrived at West Hill to stretch the children’s skills to the max.

The challenge was called Level Up!

All eight of the enterprise skills were required for students to successfully complete the many stages in developing a new platform computer game. They began the day researching West Hill’s values and places within the school that would become the setting and theme of their game. Tasked with designing not only the game’s map but also their game’s characters, obstacles and objects, Using Imagination skills effectively as a group was going to be vital to success. Once their game worlds were complete, the teams were introduced to coding, the logical way computers think and the way humans solve problems to communicate with them before precisely engineering how to control their own character. It was then time for the students to become Sales Representatives and show off their ideas in a final presentation to their class at the EE Game Expo!

There is more information on the Enabling Enterprise website.

Here are some photos from the day:

Letters from Justine Greening MP

July 2017

Earlier in the term our MP and Education Secretary Justine Greening wrote to schools in Wandsworth asking for some artwork for her office. Some of our pupils produced some lovely artwork for her and at the beginning of July she wrote back, not only to Miss Dobson, but also to each child. Here are some of the letters she wrote:
